Economy 2

Once again I’ve let too much time lapse between blog entries.  This morning I was sipping my coffee and surfing the net and found the following on CNN.  Jane Alexander makes such excellent points about the arts and the economy.  But to me, most importantly, she reminds critics of the arts part of the stimulus package that it’s not just “business” people that are employed in this country.  It’s writers, artists, graphic artists, musicians, concert promoters, people who run restaurants that feed playgoers.  The list goes on and on.  We can wax poetic about the value of the arts in the world, and if you’re reading my blog you’re part of the choir.  But really to the rest of the world it’s about dollars and sense and they need to get the message.   We artists are employed or potentially employed workers.  We need to work, too.  Here is the whole article if you like:  http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/03/04/alexander.arts/index.html
